Christmas Decor in the Kitchen

You can easily spread Christmas cheer throughout your home, into the kitchen, by adding just a few decorative items, things you probably already own.  When I finally invested in a Le Cruset dutch oven a few years ago, I purposely bought red because I thought it would look so good during the holidays.  And it does! :) Even if you don't have any red pots or pans, you might have some colorful bowls or dishes you could incorporate into your decor.  

The red tray was moved out of my son's room temporarily to add more pops of color.  I found the cookie jar and wreath at Hobby Lobby.  I hung the wreath with an adhesive hook and figured I can take the wreath down while cooking if I need to.  Flowers or poinsettia plants would be great too. 

The towels are from Target and were hanging in our bathroom last year.  You don't have to keep putting things in their same ole place- have fun moving them around!  The red timer is perfect here too and gets a lot of use.  

The olive oil and balsamic vinegar are sitting on a wood tray with a sprig of faux berries.  Easy and pretty. 

And our thankful tree was exchanged for faux pine branches and berries from Hobby Lobby.  I used a foam block inside the urn to keep the branches positioned where I wanted them and to give them more height. 

I'm decorating our open kitchen shelving too, but I'm not quite finished with it.  Do you extend your holiday decor into the kitchen too?

Don't forget to link up your holiday mantels on Wednesday at Ten June & Our Fifth House.

You can see our "mantel" this year HERE.

And thank you to Kate (Centsational Girl) for including me in her Holiday Gift Guide this year and to Kristen (The Hunted Interior) for having me participate in her Ornament Round-up feature.
